Best States in the U.S.A.bbbh
The Top Ten
There should be no debate about this Florida is hot and humid. In southern California the temperature can be in the mid 60's all year round. In northern California it provides some of the best and most scenic national parks in the world including yosemite, sequoia, and Kings Canyon. When people think of California they think of the beach and big cities but they don't seem to remember the variety of places to visit that this wonderful state has.
The guy below me that said it is in the mid 60's all year round: you're an idiot and you clearly don't live in California if you believe that laugh out loud I lived their for 18 years. Hated every minute. Crowded, expensive, rude people. This and New York are 2 of the worst states to live in. Only plus side of California: Orange County, the beach, anywhere except LA, Sacramento, and San Francisco. Basically anywhere but the big cities.
You're probably wondering why California is all the way down at #5. Well I picked the best state, #1 as Florida because it's cheaper than California! They are very similar states, except price wise. Also the California government is crashing and is in debt! The taxes in California are also 10%!
So you're telling me this is #1 on best states but also number #1 on worst states? Doesn't make senseV 19 Comments
Florida is the center of art, talent, development and presidential leadership. Yes it has many rules, road signs and tolls but that is there to contribute to the organization a of this state. There is untouchable law and order and crimes are dealt with immediately. It's towns, neighborhoods and cities are kept safe and people are not worried. At least, I'M not worried. It might like in tourism when you compare it to other states but that is ONE FLAW. There are literally thousands of shops, entertainment venues and fast food restaurants to keep people happy. New York, YOU'RE A WINNER! - davakoh
The lake effect snow is awesome! (Especially Tug Hill) Florida completely sucks in all ways and only the mountains of California are good.
I've been to the adirondacks in the upstate region and the landscape there is epic, ancient looking forests of pine, beech, and hemlock, towering granite cliffs, and nice clean lakes, but I never got the chance to see the city though
Shoulda been the capital of the US.V 7 Comments
I Live in Florida and let me tell it pretty awesome especially because has nice weather all the time and it's the state that doesn't also its known for its great beaches/ Florida is where all NASA Shuttles take off Including Apollo 13 And Florida is amazing Orlando, Miami, clearwater, and Tampa.
Florida is my favorite state BY FAR! It has gorgeous beaches, amazing cities, and Disney World, which is my favorite amusement park :) I LOVE Florida! I know the drivers are terrible, but all of the other amazing experiences it has to offer make up for that one downside! Florida is amazing
I know I'm probably going to get shot for putting this above California, but let's face it, Florida is the best of all. It has beautiful beaches, TONS of amazing amusement parks, great cities (MIAMI), and tons of other attractions that make this the best state in America! - christopher94
Florida is awesome. It has Orlando, and all it's theme parks, and the hot weather and awesome beachesV 11 Comments
Texas is the great state you can say every bad thing you want about Texas but every one loves the lone star state and you can't deny that
Even though it is hot it is still a nice place to live. Austin Dallas and everything else!
Some landscapes in Texas can be pretty but it's usually too hot :/
Let's face it, New York and California are corrupted to the core by socialism and communism. You want a free and more conservative, tranditional state, Texas is probably the best.V 4 Comments
Glad to see my home state up so high where it should be. We have amazingly warm Summer's like Florida, and cold winters like Alaska, Minnesota is the best. - Beatlesboy9
Cold winters and summers that are not that hot. I love winter, so our cold and deep snow and below zero is beautiful.
I live in Bloomington, it's nice and quiet and safe and we have the Mall of America. The Twin Cities are not dangerous, they are safe and so much fun. We have the best changing leaves in the fall, with gigantic leaf piles.
I have three daughters (eleven, nine, and three), and a dog. I consider this the best place to raise kids.
MOA (as us Minnesotans call it) has an American Girl Store (we love AG), an INDOOR amusement park (our favorites are the log chute and the Backyardigans Swing), a movie theater, an aquarium, and more.
There's Irvine Park in St. Paul, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art in Minneapolis.
Minnesota is the best state ever and there is always something to do. Bloomington is a suburb of Twin Cities, so we are part of the Twin Cities, not outstate!
State of Hockey. State of the Accent. Only State with a town that has two official Languages, New Ulm, MN (English, German)V 1 Comment
In southern cities like Colorado Springs Or Pueblo, it is sunny and beautiful like New Mexico.
Colorado is the best state ever! We have mountains, awesome ski resorts, and red rocks ampitheater, known as the best place in america to see a concert! You will die an unhappy person if you don't go to Colorado!
Colorado is a mixture of all the rest of America. We have everything imaginable except for beaches, and you can't forget about the stunning scenery, especially up in the Rockie's.
This place is GORGEOUS! I love it! Every corner of Hawaii is beautiful and amazing!
Hawaii is the best place for vacation. It is a clean island with a lot of excitement.
It's small though To live in what if I want to go to other states?
Best place on Earth!V 1 Comment
The Keystone State has been home to the Nation's capitol (Philadelphia 6xs, Lancaster, & York), the Birthplace of the nation, the first true religious freedom state, First place of protest against slavery in the U.S. A, some of the biggest manufactures reside in the state (US Steel, Heinz, Hershey), Home to many of the countries first and/or oldest (Bank, Fire department, University, Art Museum, Zoo, Library system, Medical School, and literally almost every else. ) The geographical makeup of the state is also very diverse, as well as the people and animals which inhabit the state. Pennsylvania is indeed a VERY underrated state.
Pennsylvania is by far the most underrated state. It has preserved its culture and beauty. Sometimes I think you haven't lived in America until you've toured the Amish and historic areas of the state. Plus, you can't forget that Philadelphia is here, history and all. And what would we do without Hershey's?
This warms my heart to see my home here
The buildings are old as hell and a pain to live in - kanrayV 2 Comments
I live only an hour south of downtown Chicago, and the city is beautiful, epic architecture, great music, and amazing food, the only issue is the gangs in the outlying neighborhoods, but Illinois has some scenic places as well like starved rock, and garden of the gods
Chicago AKA the Windy City is a nice place to be. A lot of job opportunities right by Lake Michigan and has the 2nd tallest building in the world.
From big cities to country! Illinois is a great place for tourism!
Chicago is my favorite city - AjklothV 3 Comments
Where else could you find beautiful scenery and rivers? Maine! Friendly people, quiet, and beautiful.V 1 Comment
The land of cheese and beer, need I say anymore, where else can you expeirance all types of weather in four days?
Cold winters and great cheese! Friendly people and so many friendly people.
Wisconsin is beautiful and the people are friendly, places like Ashland, Bayfield, LaCrosse, And the dells are awesome, good food as wellV 1 Comment
Lots of snow. Oregon has the best rain and gardens. It's great!
I am from Oregon but I now live in Texas. Oregon is awesome ith fresh air huge trees and large hills
This state is the most beautiful, underrated state. Great people, great services, it"s the American dream.
I may go there to see my 63 year old aunt.
What is Virginia doing on this list? This state is the WORST! Rude people, Ghetto, and this place is disgusting. The only good thing about Virginia is Bucsh Gardens. that's IT.
Lakes, mountains, cold winters and chilly summers, and kind people. Awesome!
Alaska is #15 on both most and least hated states. I don't know why
Why does everyone hate Alaska's cold weather
Friendly people, fairly cold winters, and hot summers. Pepsi was invented in North Carolina and so was airplanes. Great beaches, and lots of things to do!
Mountains, Foothills, Beaches, Fantastic Food, Our State Magazine, face it... North Carolina has it all.
Carowinds is so much fun, Greensboro is awesome, the mountains are amazing, and the beaches are great!
Come on Atlantic Beach, White Lake, Hatteras, The Cardinal what's not to love about NC. VOTE. - masterblasterV 3 Comments
Washington. You can find a happy medium for all. As far as the person who disputed the 60s weather and said they lived there for 18 years and is sucked? Does that mean you lived in every part?
This rain stereotype is awful. Washington has mountains, pine tree forests, and gorgeous summers with long days.
Cedar Point is one of the greatest amusement parks I've ever been to, Cincinnati is a great city, and the whole state is just a beautiful place
Ohio has every thing really cars the first person to step on the moon everyone is an idiot.
They have rebelled against the government and failed 5 times. - MaxAttaxSportz
Amazing education!V 1 Comment
There would be no Washington DC if it were not for Maryland. It may not be the best state ever, but it is an extremely important one.
Maryland is the best state, not California! - dsamba1062
Maryland rocks the most, not California!V 1 Comment
Yeah that's right! Warm weather, good education. The only thing missing is a beach, but WHO CARES?!?! There's pools, resorts, good community, SUN TANS! Best state EVER! One reason other states have more votes is OVERPOPULATION! (no offense, they're great, but you got NOTHING on AZ! )
Well, some people hate hot weather
The desert is a great place to look at in the sun.
I live here and its like a bubble, you are amazed with other states weather and people. Though a lot of people are saying that we are ¨Crack heads¨ every states has ghettos and our capital city here is one of them. If you want to go to somewhere nice, go to Scottsdale or Flagstaff.V 1 Comment
There is no other state as beautiful as Montana. Just Google "glacier national park" or "Beartooth range Montana" and you'll see exactly what I mean. No other state even comes CLOSE to the beauty of Montana. I mean, California has the Sierra's but they pale in comparison to the glacially carved Northern Rockies of Montana.
Glad its #19. Don't believe the myths that the snow never melts. It's full of mountains and places to explore, such as the sadly dwindling Glacier National Park. There are some great places to live such as Missoula and Bozeman that are always overlooked.
Montana is so pretty. It is a awesome state. Yellowstone National Park is in Montana. - ninja122710
